food allergies Tag

HOLA!  Buenos dias? Having just returned from Mexico on family vacation, I am completely inspired to share an incredibly easy to make, inexpensive, protein rich, Breakfast burritos.  But before I do that, I just have to say how impressed I was with our trip to Cabo. Beyond it just being so darn pretty, and not mention relaxing, everyone we met were kind & polite, even when we passed on buying their goods they were selling on the marina.  What really blew me away, is that almost every restaurant we went to for dinner, asked right off about food allergies, even the gentleman taking our reservations! Way to make a food-allergy-mom feel more comfortable!   I can't remember the last time one of my waiters here actually asked about any potential allergies.  Needless to say, it was a wonderful time away and I am thankful everyone took such good care of us.

Because you have a purpose! www.Xanderfriendlyfoods.com For the last 2 days, I've been trying to get a specific post out but after 3 calls with my hosting provider & multiple downloads, deletes, reboots and what-nots, that post has been lost in an effort to save everything else on this blog.  Boo! The funny thing is, as I was typing about a delicious dessert, I had another post idea that just wouldn't go away and it looks like fate wanted that one written first.  So,  here you go Fate!

Easy, homemade, vegan & gluten free Lasagna roll-ups, made with tofu ricotta, and a flavorful vegan sausage crumble. Peanut & Nut free also.

Garfield is not the only one who LOVES lasagna!

My oldest son Zac is becoming a bit of a foodie. Maybe its because he's been listening to me for all these years talk about food, or having them help me in the kitchen. Maybe it's because he's taking a Food Prep class in high school this year and is enjoying being creative in there.  Maybe it's just because he likes good food.  :) Whatever, the reason, it makes me proud to see him enjoying the tastes & flavors of REAL, home-cooked food.  Usually, he's the first to request certain dinners as well, especially when we've been in the season of eating out a little more than we should. (I know you've all been there!).

Sometimes, it's a request for chili, sometimes enchiladas, but most of the time, it's lasagna. Vegan Lasagna to be exact. This recipe by far is his favorite and was so loved by others, it was included on Buzzfeed, much to my kiddos delight.  However, sometimes I just get bored with making it the same way and decided to turn this recipe into Easy-to-serve, Roll-ups.

These cute little rolls, didn't take any longer than it would layering a big pan of traditional lasagna and I loved that each bite, was full of flavor and noodles. Kind of like when you eat from the center of the lasagna pan.

Let me be Frank with you....these Hot Veggie Dogs are good! ( do you see what I did there? My oldest son, who enjoys a good PUN would be so proud).

Seriously, these are stinking amazing!

There have only been a few times that a new food concept had me intrigued (like when meringue was being made from aquafaba - the liquid from canned chickpeas) and this is one of those times.  Let me explain.
